In a video uploaded on Twitter, formerly known as X, men approaching with ladders can be seen. The commentators seemed amused by the sight as they marched with a wooden ladder, which was orange in color. As the on-court staff were setting up the ladder, the crowd sounded very much frustrated. The camera zoomed in on the net, which portrayed a sorry state. One of the strings attached to the ring came off, which caused the problem. 

The staff were prompt in their approach as they started to take out the defective net carefully. As soon as the defective one was removed, a fresh net was brought in and was being installed. As the staff were installing the net, the on-air commentator stated that the task was not at all easy. Ultimately, after a significant delay, everything was finally back to normal, and the play resumed. So, which team was able to keep their concentration intact and clinch the victory?
